Student Wellness Survey Overview & Questions

Virginia Beach City Public Schools established the School Health Advisory Board (SHAB) in 1991. It was established for the purpose of advising the school division about the development and implementation of school health programs. The SHAB is comprised of parents, health professionals, and community representatives.
